One of the permanent outcomes of the City of Architecture could be the Glasgow architecture and design international biennale, based in the Mackintosh Lighthouse building now being converted for gallery use. Lighthouse director Stuart MacDonald hopes to launch the biennale in 2001, identified by the Arts Council as the 'year of the artist'. Certainly the city could do with a regular international event, since they usually only take place once a decade (Garden Festival, City of Culture, and now City of Architecture). A working group is currently looking at funding. Meanwhile an exhibition that draws attention to international aspects of Glasgow is the 'Concentric Cities' show, curated by Neil Baxter. This reviews 99 buildings - available to be visited - in three city rings. Each has taken inspiration (more or less) from a building elsewhere in the world, nicely published in a catalogue. Of course the idea, in which the city is the exhibition, makes it the biggest event in the world. Or possibly the universe.
